PostSubject: Every time I see the name "Forrest Gump"   Sun Sep 30, 2012 5:40 pm

I think of this video on America's Funniest Home Videos that parodied it called "Forrest Dump", and it had a guy with a trash bag filled with stuff on his head, as he walked around a park and did things.


I saw that parody when I was a little kid, and I still have no idea to this day what Forrest Gump is actually about.

That's all I have to say about that.

Probably a movie somewhat close to your own life.

I bet my life is much more fulfilling than Forrest Gump's.

Forrest Gump did something other than sitting around playing X-Com all day.

I should probably watch this movie again. Been at least 10 years.

I've barely had any time to play X-COM lately; I've been rehearsing like fucking crazy for the past month. It's been over a week since I had a day with no rehearsal, and I still have my job on top of that for part of the week. I'm doing significant things outside of the virtual realm

I might have to curl up on my couch and watch this tonight so I can stop worrying about life for a bit. Except I still don't know where my fucking remote is....

I've seen that movie too many damn times. Awesome the first time, awesome the second, good the third, good the fourth, boring the fifth, shitty the sixth, and then by the seventh time I find myself preferring to watch Friends reruns over Forrest Gump, and you should never prefer that over anything.....

Ooh, Friends, that totally came out of left field. You sure are crazy and random.



Forrest Gump gets better with repeated viewings, if anything. Sure, it sort of plateaus after a while, but it's left hovering at a high grade, you fucking shithead.

Yeah, the greatness of Gump doesn't really diminish but gets better each time.

That said, I wouldn't watch it more than say once every two or three years, but I do that with some of my absolute favorites like Braveheart, et al. There's a difference between a great film I love and appreciate and enjoy the shit out of every time I see it but would only watch periodically, and one I'd watch sometimes several times a year like some nutcase such as the Evil Dead movies or Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Schlock seems to live up better to frequent viewings, especially since it usually ranges from 70 to 90 minutes.

I very rarely rewatch movies today. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was my favorite movie as a kid, but I watched it so much that I got completely burnt out on it. I don't want to get burnt out on any of my favorite movies today, so I usually try to watch them only when I'm with someone who hasn't seen it before (so I can vicariously experience their watching it for the first time), or if it's been long enough that I barely remember the movie. Or if I happen to feel like it Tongue

You need better reading comprehension Bluge; nowhere in my post did I compare the two movies. I simply pointed it out as a movie that I personally happened to get tired of.
